My quick thoughts:

We shall see which Magic team shows up for Game 4. Shorthanded once again, do these guys just give up competing and allow the Bucks to dictate the series or do they fight to give themselves a puncher's chance? If they are attempting to do the latter, then the offense is going to have to show a lot more urgency and better decision making. We need to move away from trying to get Evan going early and trust in the two man action of Markelle and Vuc where Markelle can attack more downhill while Vuc is spaced behind the line and can decide on whether to shoot the three or attack the closeout from Lopez. If they switch, then Vuc can pin his man down in the paint and post up and initiate offense from there. Evan needs to be used more as a spot up/get open through off-ball screens shooter and nothing else. This will simplify his game so that he does not panic trying to make a play. Our threes need to occur through dribble penetration and kick out. We cannot just jack up the first available shot because if we miss, then the Bucks are off to the races.

Defensively we have to play with max effort and do not leave their shooters unless it is Bledsoe or Giannis shooting the three.

To sum it all up, just play with some damn pride please.

I think they're playing with effort and some pride, but they're just underperforming at the most essential part of the game- shooting.

This team has had Heart and Hustle in the playoffs. All I want is to keep seeing that, don't care for the win-loss record.

It’s not their fault and I dont blame them personally because roster has been constructed this way ....somebody built this team and likes it.

This is the game for Fultz to bust out and dominate the action while Vuc quietly picks up 30 pts off of the chaos Markelle creates. Obviously, anything positive depends on the shots falling from some combo of Ennis, Evan, Clark, TRoss, etc. Like to see a very physical Birch and Clark on Giannis like Game 1. That is the non-statistic we miss without AG and MCW.

Except our fo being crazy about getting forwards and we have none from our rotation right now.
Bold Predictions:
1. Deandre Ayton biggest disappointment of 2018 draft.
2. Nick Nurse becomes Orlando Magic Head Coach. (15.04.2018)

Fournier needs to show up period. Every team needs a pull up threat. He cant get to the rim becouse of droped Lopez and rest of the bucks collapsing, Matthews is glued to him on the perimeter. His runner is shaky he must work at it. One positive is his passing, he made the weak side passes more often ( not that accurate). We need Okeke shooting badly right now, he will help us a lot next year.

Does Fournier show up?
Do we see Cliff really ride DJ because he's worried about keeping it close early?

Thank you Markelle. Great read on that steal. Please just go out there and play aggressive.

It's just painful watching Fultz against an elite defense in the half-court at this point. It's just so easy for teams to telegraph what he wants to do since he is so reluctant to shoot.
